Avery Dennison Introduces New Adhesive for Wine and Spirits Labeling in Cold and Wet Conditions

 Z2010 adhesive doesn’t float or lift when submerged in ice bucket for up to eight hours

Mentor, OH – With wine and spirits makers moving to heavier label stocks to support premium positioning and capitalize on marketplace growth, Avery Dennison Label and Packaging Materials today introduced a new adhesive to its Wine and Spirits Portfolio. The Avery Dennison Z2010 adhesive is engineered to support heavier facestocks and won’t float or show lift for up to eight hours while submerged in ice or cold box.

Applying labels to wine and sparkling wine bottles when they are cooler than their surroundings and slick with surface condensation is easier with Z2010. In addition to its aggressive initial tack that ensures heavier, embellished labels stay firmly adhered, the Z2010 adhesive also offers improved tight mandrel performance.

“As brands move to heavier stocks and more embellishments to differentiate in an increasingly competitive market, they must maintain a high level of performance in demanding end use conditions,” said Paul Purdef, marketing director for specialty at Avery Dennison. “Our Z2010 adhesive protects the label adhesion throughout consumption, even for products that are kept on ice.”

This new adhesive will be showcased at the Avery Dennison booth at Labelexpo Americas 2022, September 13-15 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago, IL.
